Exploring new ways for showcasing digital artworks in a gallery context, Offline Art: New2 is a new exhibition that enables visitors to view art through their smart devices.

Offline Art: New2 is currently taking place at the XPO Gallery in Paris, and features the work of artists who work primarily online or digitally, including Cory Arcangel, Dragan Espenschied, Jonas Lund, Evan Roth and Sarah Weis.

Visitors can access specific works via wireless networks and routers placed in and around the gallery space. Each router has been hung on the wall to emulate a traditional artwork, while its assigned network “reflects” the artists name.

“The art itself becomes visible only on the visitor’s private screen”, explains the exhibition press release.
